On Saturday, May 21, Grace Episcopal Church, Medford, kicked off its Capital Campaign to restore its historical church building. The Rt. Rev. M. Thomas Shaw, SSJE, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts was the evening’s keynote speaker. It was revealed during the evening that the Campaign had already raised over $409,000 towards its $625,000 goal. Grace Church is the oldest standing building designed by noted architect H.H. Richardson, most notably known for Trinity Church, Copley Square. The Church was built by the Brooks family of Medford in 1868. The restoration will include the church’s 90 foot bell tower, its nine bells, restoration of historic roof and masonry, and new “green” lighting and heating systems.
